In a bid to double its broker network before the end of 2010, Club Financial Services has launched a new recruitment and training initiative.
The new initiative, Club Academy, will kick off at the end of April, where brokers from around the country can apply for a two week course at the company’s South Australian headquarters.
Club Financial Services director of sales and marketing Simon Norris said the organisation’s ongoing commitment to compliance and best practice was a primary focus of this latest recruitment drive.
“Compliance really is the corner stone of our business and we want to ensure that anyone joining the Club network has the necessary tools and resources to support this,” Mr Norris said.
Open to recent Club recruits, current brokers and anyone who wants to enter the mortgage broking and loan industry, Mr Norris said the Academy will assist new brokers to meet industry standards and existing brokers to further their professional development.
“Brokers can choose which part of the Academy they participate in depending on their existing qualifications,” he said.
“The first week will facilitate Certificate IV in mortgage broking, while the second week will allow for accreditations with major lenders as well as sessions including business management, marketing and loan applications and processing.”
Further to boosting the number of brokers Club has around the country, the Academy will also contribute to the company's long-term plans for growing its franchise network.
“We currently have 25 franchises across Australia, and we are keen to increase this number over the next two years,” Mr Norris said.
